A fun and safe place for grieving children.


2019 June Camp in Partnership with A Little Hope, Inc. – The National Foundation for Grieving Children, Teens and Families

Camp Name :

In Partnership with A Little Hope, Inc. – The National Foundation for Grieving Children, Teens and Families - suicide losses only

Age Range :


When Friday, June 7, 2019 - 5:30pm
Location: Camp Johnsonburg
Johnsonburg, New Jersey 07825


This three day program is a strength-based, child-focused model, which includes age-based support groups facilitated by trained grief specialists. The program will facilitate icebreakers, confidence-building activities and other activities designed to facilitate trust, expression, and interaction among them.


To be eligible for this camp, the child must be between the ages of 7-17(18 if still in high school), and experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver to death by suicide.


Grief evolves with each developmental stage a child reaches, so learning to manage grief in a healthy way is important at every age. Whether the child’s loss was ten years or three months ago, encourage them to attend - you may have an opportunity to change the course of their life.
